First look: Adjaye and others design new Kielder shelters

  • Comment

Kielder Water & Forest Park in Northumberland has asked five practices, including Adjaye Associates, to design a series of shelters as part of its arts and architecture programme

David Adjaye is joined by Bartlett-based Sixteen*(makers), London’s Studio Weave, Ryder Architecture and US art collective Simparch.

Work is already well underway on both Adjaye’s Specere shelter and the Studio Weave-designed Freya’s Cabin.

According to a spokesman: ‘The ambitious shelter commissions will enable visitors to stop and have a well-earned breather, as they enjoy exploring the newly developed Lakeside Way – a 26-mile custom-made multi-user track that snakes around the idyllic Kielder Water. 

‘The individual shelters, with their specially designed contemporary surroundings, will allow people to sit back and absorb the dramatic scenic environment.’
